Talking pigs move over. Cats are by far the most intelligent species in the animal kingdom-at least that’s the view Clio the cat posits in her autobiography My Nine Lives (US$16). In this new picture book from Atheneum Books for Young Readers, an inconspicuous looking tabby recounts the incredible events of her nine lives and the role she played in important cultural and scientific movements. For example, did you know that Clio got Mona Lisa to smile for Da Vinci, or that she invented the clock and jazz music? The proof of these achievements and others are contained in the book’s 40 pages. My Nine Lives was written by Anne Schwartz, and is being distributed by Simon & Schuster. It is currently available at all book stores.
